Lets face it, 3D movies are not going away any time soon. Every year we’re seeing more and more films being released and re-released in 3D. So why not experience the 3D in the best way possible?

Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they’re emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it’s back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it’s all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it’s learning just how much casual ass-kickery it can fit into a 100 minute package.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
